CLASSIC VIDEO - 1987 IHRA SPRING NATIONALS, BRISTOL, TENN.
This is the last big IHRA Spring Nationals event with Larry Carrier as president of the sanctioning body.
Travel back to a time when the drag strip was carved out of the middle of the Tennessee mountains, and was known as Thunder Valley.
You'll see fuel Funny Cars, including a speed frenzied Mike Dunn behind the wheel of Joe Pisano's beautiful Oldsmobile Funny Car. Plus there are the mountain motor Pro Stocks.
